The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    I'm in 8th grade and 6 foot tall, play football and basketball. I don't have too much muscle though. The last two months I dedicated myself to getting stronger. I pushed myself as hard as I could doing varying weight exersizes at home like push ups since I didn't have a gym to go to. I went to the gym today and my squats and benchpress did not improve since 2 months ago. I felt pretty disappointed, but I can get over it. What are some exersizes I can do in the gym that would really help me get stronger?
    P.s do push ups just not help the bench press? And I have access to the gym now.

    Squats are #1

    After that; deadlift, bench press, rows, overhead press, and chinups.

    It takes time and keep at it.
